Advent: ready....and breathing again....

Well, it seems my "cold" stuffiness may have just been allergies. Not so stuffy tonight. (let's hope that's it)...

And, I finally got most of the stuff done that I have been working on all week - almost ready for Advent. I just have an article to write for the newsletter and a sermon to prepare...

The stations for Advent MDG's turned out well, I think, thanks to some help I got from various RevGals...I will try to photo a few of them and post them...

I have the reflection booklet done for lighting the Advent wreath candles, emphasising the MDG's, (which people can take home, along with the advent wreaths they can make). And the Prayers of the People are done, also emphasizing the MDG's...and, the seasonal worship booklet is done. (Big sigh of relief)....

So. Now. I can breath a little.

Oh. And I have my itinerary for my trip to the far SW...so an idea of what that will be like too. Actually looking forward to it!

Homily for the Festive Eucharist at the closing of the Episcopal Women's Caucus

The readings that we chose for the service tonight were all picked specifically for this service because they lift up the role of women ...
